WATERPROOF FLATS TO WEAR
Shoes and Accessories|February 21
The assumption that clunky rain boots are the only shoes able to keep your feet dry in wet weather isn’t necessarily right. There are some great waterproof flats that should prevent your feet from getting soaked on rainy days, and when the weather is wet but warm, these looks make practical alternatives. Like most rain boots, these flats listed below are made from waterproof materials such as rubber or lightweight, flexible EVA.

CHOOKA BUTTERFLY SKIMMER

Offering the same waterproof, vulcanized construction found in Chooka’s signature rain boots, this dainty ballet flat from the brand is durable and protective. The cotton-polyester blend lining should be soft against the skin and absorb moisture, while the footbed features a microsuede insole that extends up the side slightly to enhance comfort. The insole is also removable, making it easy to clean or replace.

CROCS BALLET FLAT

Known for its beloved slip-on clogs, Crocs offers versatile waterproof ballet flats as well. These reinforced flats deliver a relaxed design with a tapered fit in the back of the heel for a secure fit. They also include soft Croslite foam cushioning with enhanced arch support and Crocs Lock slip-resistant treads.

OKA-B TAYLOR JELLY BALLET FLAT

Available in nine colors to choose from, these Oka-B ballet flats feature a “splash-proof” jelly upper that should feel soft against the skin and be easy to wipe clean. Other highlights include padded insoles with arch support and slip-resistant soles.

NATIVE SHOES AUDREY FLAT

Made entirely of injection-molded EVA, Native Shoes’ Audrey flat delivers a sleek pointed toe and also comes in black, white, pink, and fire engine red. Underfoot, it’s lightly padded and equipped with durable outsoles.
